"When you believe you have some problem it means your practice is not good enough. When your practice is good enough, whatever you see, whatever you do, that is the direct experience of reality."

Center's Description
We are a group of Zen meditators started in the 1980's by Ken Rosen. Our teacher, Sensei Lawson Sachter studied Zen for many years under Roshi Philip Kapleau at the Rochester Zen Center. He and his wife Sunya Kjolhede, both Dharma heirs of Roshi Kapleau, co-direct Windhorse Zen Community, located near Asheville, North Carolina. Lawson visits and conducts retreats at the Center in Clearwater several times a year.

The practice at the CWZC follows the traditions and teachings of Roshi Philip Kapleau (1912-2004), whose book The Three Pillars of Zen was instrumental in introducing Zen Buddhism to the West.

This sitting group of 10-20 people meets twice weekly in an immaculate, fully-equipped, dedicated zendo (a zendo not used for any other purpose). The atmosphere is friendly. Sesshins are held quarterly. This is the real thing.
